I would like to express my profound sorrow and sympathy to the the ordinary people of Boston with regard to all deaths and injuries to American citizens. Your city has been good to the Irish people and I regard it as very good friend to the Irish people.This blog is an attempt to log the circumstances and evolution of the British legacy that led up to this tragedy. Charles Dickens is a tool used to try describe the evolution to this horrific event and get your attention! Please try to understand that any constructive criticism is from a friend, and most certainly not directed against ordinary American citizens. Brian Clarke
Dickens is a euphemism for "devil". From Shakespeare's "Merry Wives of Windsor",(Act III, Scene II).
"I cannot tell what the dickens his name is".
